Fast-paced with an engaging protagonist. I enjoyed this book thoroughly... and was prompted to buy several other Margolin novels as a consequence. In fact, I thought The Associate was one of Margolin's best novels--far, far better than Wild Justice.

This is a great mystery with a good plot. The main character is a young, scared, naïve lawyer who makes silly mistakes but it is the mistakes that drives the story along and develops into a very entertaining listen. Would a real world lawyer do some of the things he did? Most likely not!... but he is scared and fear caused him to do a couple of really stupid things. Just when he thought that he was going to finally get the information that's needed to clear his name only to find out that he's made another mistake -- the reader can see it coming, but it's okay because the story has enough meat on the bones to hold interest. The development of the main characters is done very well that you care about what's going to happen next... how will he clear his name, how will all the threads in the story be weaved into a coherent conclusion. Margolin did a beautiful job of weaving a story inside of a story which is done in one long flashback.
Scott Brick provided an excellent performance. He did not over perform in any way as he is known to sometimes do.... He is one of my favorites and I think that he hit the mark just right with this performance.
